For Visitors – How to Use This Site
A new element to your visit
We invite you to add a new element to your holiday or visit to our region by enjoying the richness and diversity of the talents and expertise of our ‘Artisan Créateurs’ – Artists and crafts people (Artisans d’Art).
Visit their Ateliers and meet them at the local markets and exhibitions, giving you the chance to really appreciate their artistry and perhaps buy some of their beautiful and original hand-made items.
For those with more time, some of our artisans offer training and workshops where you can learn and practice their art.
This site is a Listing Directory of these Artisan Créateurs, optimised for your mobile and tablet use, displaying their creativity and skills and providing contact details, location and opening hours to enable you to visit them at work.
Listings marked Premium have the most information and photos about the Artisan including website and social media links.
Our Blog/Events page gives details of many Artisan markets and Art Exhibitions in the area where you will be able to meet up with many of our Créateurs.
